Beat to a Pulp has had some interesting material the last few weeks. Currently, a short film by Ryle Smith called "One Good Turn" can be seen at the "weekly punch."
While you're there, take a look at "Miles to Go," a western by Edward A. Grainger. I wish there was a bigger market for westerns (then again, I wish there was a bigger market for crime stories; Hell, I wish it was 1954 so I could make a goddamn living writing for the pulps.) The western, like noir fiction, is a truly American genre. It's sad the masses don't recognize this. There is a sentiment among the elite that westerns are somehow ancient, reactionary testaments to old world racism and genocide. This is really just a lot of liberal arts nonsense that gets perpetuated by left-wing, knee-jerk reactionary professors, theorists, and basically sour-pussed douchebags who don't get it. To fully understand this, read Grainger's western, which does not have a John Wayne caricature killing off Apache Indians.
If the western is your thing, there are also links at Beat to a Pulp to blogs and sites on the Internet that specialize in the genre.
